The aim of the research conducted in Jakarta, Bogor, Cirebon, Yogyakarta, Solo and Malang is to map the views of religious organizations to the Family Planning and women’s sexual and reproductive health rights (SRHR). Within the scope of the study, there are some instruments in this study of family planning and fundamentalism. First, religious groups, both mainstream and non-mainstream, local and transnational fundamentalist Islamic groups. Second, women who become family planning acceptors and refuse birth control. Third, the government agency that plays an important role in family planning programs, such as KB Agency, Department of Health and so on. Fourth, non-governmental organizations or NGOs who have concerns in the issues of family planning and women’s rights. Fifth, the most important, religious views that reject and accept family planning by using religious arguments.

This study is a qualitative research. Data is obtained through interviews, field observation, collection of research documents, both written and oral, such as lectures, discussions, seminars, etc. concerning related issues.

In particular, this study analyze religious views and women’s SRHR based on information from primary sources. As a research using feminist approach and methodology, the results of this study are intended as advocacy material that changes on issues that become Rumah KitaB’s concerns. Results of this study are expected to be used as a foothold in formulating public policy related to family planning and women’s rights.
